that his inability to really give any kind of boost to the romney/ryan ticket has been shaped as much as anything else by the fact that he did a belly flop in that speech because the social media picked him up on it right away before the speech was even over. >> jennifer: it's an interesting thing. maybe the main stream media will be influenced by the twitter stream more than the reverse. >> cenk: we have got to take a quick break, when we come back john has an interesting question. what is the question we would ask of the debaters. >> cenk: we're back on current's politically direct coverage of the first presidential debate. it's coming up in just a little bit. going to be a lot of fun. john fugelsang has a question for all of us. >> john: as long as we're all celebrating, zinger watts 2012 if you had the chance to be in jim lehrer's seat, and apparently he is very angry about the criticism of the casting this year, if you could sit in his seat what is the question you would ask each of these candidates. >> jennifer: you go first. >> john: me? >> jennifer: yes. >
morning. >> hey bill good morning, everybody. mitt romney has a big foreign policy speech this morning and the obama campaign is saying bring it on. romney speaks in lexington today where he is a couple of goals. one he needs to comeback in the foreign policy this year especially after he insulted several countries in his word tour earlier this year. we are expecting him to encourage intervening in syria and avoiding defense cuts next year, and working closely with our allies like israel. and he will portray the president obama as not someone who shows enough strength. team obama is fighting back however. and the president is managing to poke a little fun at himself. here he is last night. >> obama: they just perform flaw leslie, fight after fight. i can't always say the same. >> it is the fourth time we have heard the president acknowledge his less than perfect debate performance. more bill press coming up live after the break. stay with us. ♪ viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journe
't really know how to deal with it. is the president just going to sit over there and call romney a liar? that's not necessarily helpful. so i think what's encouraging is now the president you know, today, if you listened to his speeches, he was up there fighting back and fighting back hard. i think his team understands that this is not going to a cakewalk for the next 30 plus days. >> eliot: doug, two responses to that. first, i think the president lacked the affirmative passionate aggressive articulation of what he has done to bring us back from the precipice. his failure to do that left him playing defense the entire evening and as a consequence you're exactly right. mitt romney did etch-a-sketch his way back to the middle something he had not been doing over the course of his campaign. he became the moderate which left a gaping, yawning gap between the positions he's taken and what he articulated last night. tim, let's come back to you on the issue of the $5 trillion tax cut, most of us are viewing that as basi
. petersburg florida. the "washington post" reports that mitt romney is going to be back in virginia on monday where he is planning to give a foreign policy speech. the next presidential debate is going to be a week from tuesday in townhall format. the dp debate though is before that next thursday. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us. this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa. you'd spot movement, gather intelligence with minimal collateral damage. but rather than neutralizing enemies in their sleep you'd be targeting stocks to trade. well, that's what trade architect's heat maps do. they make you a trading assassin. trade architect. td ameritrade's empowering web-based trading platform. trade commission-free for 60 days, and we'll throw in up to $600 when you open an account.

limits and all of that, i think it's romney going on and on and giving a non-speech and saying absolutely nothing and we will learn nothing from him. >> great, thank you for calling. we will be right back here at the bill press show. call us 1-866-55-press. i'm jamal simmons sitting in for bill press who is taking a much-needed day off. we will see you in just a couple minutes. >> this is the bill press show. pwhraf. >> this is the bill press show, live on your radio and current tv. >> good morning everybody. it is 7:33 here in washington d.c. i am jamal simmons sitting in for bill press on the bill press show. call in at 1-866-55-press, that's 1-866-55-press. we are talking about debates and big debate moments. we're going to switch gears a little bit right now. i want to talk about something else that's been in the news. i'm sure there are not many people watching the bill press show who actually watch fox news sean hannity and tucker carlson and that gang. some of the people here get paid extra so that they watch fox news and they can tell you about it. peter, you know something about
's aware of it. that's how cool and off the cuff he is. mitt romney, of course, not to be outdone he is giving a foreign policy speech next week after the debate. the two candidates are not campaign today. they're both taking time off for today only to work on their debate prep. of course, mitt romney is rehearsing with rob portman of ohio standing in for barack obama because really when you think about black neoprogressive democrat, who do you want to have stand in for that? rob portman. >> absolutely. >> john: this reminds me of the time that kniffin stood in for brown turned i feel good to i feel well. john is calling us from kansas city. good morning. you're on the "bill press show." >> caller: good morning. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: i'm in kansas city kansas. >> john: right on. i have family there. >> caller: great. your question is there any way romney can win? my answer is yes and how? it would be stealing the election. >> john: amen. >> caller: how did they win in florida in 2000. a lis
myself baloney. he's been interjecting her ideas into every speech he has. >> stephanie: that's why the president is out there saying this. i'm sorry. no. mitt romney is trying to say this. but nobody's buying it. he has to say it. >> romney: i'm a president for 100% of the american people. not 99 versus 1. not 47 versus anyone else. i'll be a president for 100% of the people. i've demonstrated that throughout my life. >> no, view. >> stephanie: the polls are showing exactly the opposite. you that is the part that drove me nuts. paul ryan said 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue we're at a moral tipping point. okay. for the record, let's clear the decks. everybody, rich or poor, gets more from the federal government than they put in taxes because warren buffett doesn't have to suit up and go to afghanistan. you can't put a price tag on a dead soldier ultimately. you also can't put a price tag on the benefits o
sununu, does mitt romney agree with john sununu that barack obama is lazy. i think mitt romney ought to say something about that. but let's also keep in mind that john sununu is not the only person who was disrespectful of the president. let's remember jan brewer. and the health care speech september 9th, 2009, congressman joe wilson who yelled out you lie in the middle of a presidential speech, i think we had never seen anything like that before. so my question to you. being president is tough. democrats and progressives were pretty tough on george bush when he was in office. my question to you, the callers, was what happened with john sununu do people treat barack obama differently? or is this just a sign of the times? are people being too sensitive? all the time on twitter i hear from people who say you don't call him barack obama, you have to call him president barack obama, or president obama, and i think people should call him president obama, but sometimes i don't call george w. bush president. if you have a point of view about that please call our number 86
